Flying from Singapore
You’ll need a connecting flight to fly from Singapore to Lahore. Here are some options:
- Emirates connects Changi and Lahore via Dubai.
It’s the quickest connection, you can take Wed/Thursday and Friday off work. Flyout from Changi Tuesday night 21:00 pm and return home Sunday, 22nd March, 20:45pm.
- Thai Airlines connects Changi and Lahore via Bangkok.
Transit times are the smallest (less than two hours). You can take off from Changi Wednesday, 18th March 15:55 pm and return Singapore on Monday, 23rd March, 11:10 am.
- Sri Lankan Airlines connects Singapore with Colombo and Mihin Lanka Colombo with Lahore - Mihin is a budget airline.
If you pick SriLankan/Mihin you can fly out on Wednesday, 18th March at 4pm and return on Tuesday, 24th March 18:40 pm. It’s cheaper than Thai and Emirates. Note: Srilankan and Mihin have a codeshare agreement, you can fly within one ticket. The connection isn’t online yet so you’ll have to call Sri Lankan airlines 24 hr (free) hotline (Dial 3158 0580 from Singapore) for booking (we checked)
- Pakistan International - PIA flies non-stop from Kuala Lumpur to Lahore.
For our wedding dates, you can leave Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, 18th March 23:05 pm and come back next week Wednesday, 25th March 22:40 pm. We find this option to be best for folks who want to relax in Lahore and spend a week there. Also, this is the cheapest option. Tip: This is a dry flight so drink up at KLIA!
- If you’re coming in from India, there’s a bus service from Amritsar and direct flights from New Delhi with PIA once a week every Wednesday.
You can leave SG on Wednesday, 18th March morning at 9:10 and be home Thursday, 26th March 06:50 am. This is by far the cheapest door-to-door option. Not the most comfortable though.
Other than option 5, we’ve flown all four. Thai is alright - for the same flight cost, we’ve had holiday stopovers in Thailand. Emirates is slightly more expensive but comfortable with the best connection. PIA has decent food, no flight entertainment, but we like it because it’s direct from Kuala Lumpur and one of the cheaper options. If you want to talk about your plans with us feel free to give us a call.

Flying from Down Under
If we’re not wrong, it’s worth for most of you to stopover in Singapore! If you’d like to stay at our place during your layover in Singapore - let us know (email Osama or myself) and we’ll make arrangements to have the keys passed on to you in our absence (since we’ll be in Pakistan a week ahead of the wedding).

We have rounded up some hotel choices for you here. Most of these hotels are in the heart of the city, safe and very convenient for exploring the city.
- Pearl Continental Hotel - worth the money spent. Quite luxurious.
- Smart Hotel - A great budget option.
- Falettis Hotel - Our favourite so far.
- Avari Hotel - Same league as Pearl Continental - more expensive though
Our recommendation would be to choose one of these as they are reliable and safe. We have called in each of them and asked for discounted rates or ‘corporate rates’ as they call it.
